Lulzsec’s recent high profile attacks have gained the attention of the FBI – who are now spending a lot of their resources trying to track and prosecute the organisation.
In a series of raids, the agency targeted a datacentre in the US this week and walked away with a selection of hardware. The datacentre was operated by Swiss firm DigitalOne and their website is still offline, over 36 hours later. We aren’t sure why they targeted DigitalOne as no association with Lulzsec has been made public.
“In the night FBI has taken 3 enclosures with equipment plugged into them, possibly including your server – we cannot check it.
“After FBI’s unprofessional ‘work’ we can not restart our own servers, that’s why our Web site is offline and support doesn’t work.”
The New York Times have published an article which states that the problem is so severe to the FBI that they are working with the CIA now and other law enforcement agencies in various countries to step up the hunt for members of Lulzsec.
